A taxiway is a path for aircraft at an airport connecting runways with aprons, hangars, terminals and other facilities.

How to map

Draw a way way along the yellow center line of the taxiway and add the aeroway=taxiway to it.

Area Mapping

Sometimes in addition to mapping as a linear way, the outline of the taxiway has been mapped as an area area with aeroway=taxiway + area=yes, however area:aeroway=taxiway has been suggested for this purpose instead.

Useful combination

Additional information can be specified using these keys:

  • ref=* - for the name of the taxiway
  • width=* - for the width of the taxiway (in meter), note this should specify the physical width of the taxiway on the ground, not the clearance.
  • surface=asphalt/concrete/grass/... - physical makeup of the surface of the taxiway.
  • aeroway=holding_position - as node at holding positions on the taxiway.
